    Miguel, that seat and those handle bars don't look like they are functional together. A beautiful bike. Just don't think it's well thought out.

    cell phone holder advice needed

    I have the RAM X-grip Large mount, I put it on my homemade dash along with a knock off GoPro on a RAM mount. The mount is easy to use and works well. I suggest using the rubber safety strap, I didn't one time, and a nasty cattle guard sent the phone for an unauthorized flight.

    This might not buff out:
  6. I would say you definitely have grounds for a lemon law claim if you so choose.
  7. I've been to the dealer 5 times and now have 3 sets of calipers that have been on my 6 month old bike, crazy!!!! Steve
  8. I lost count, have they tried and failed to fix this same problem three times, or is this attempt #3? Either way, if this attempt fails, that may be an option. Or the option.

  10. That's a good point, thanks. Steve

    Democratic ticket is set

    We don't know if money was re-routed previously, it wasn't as big of a question on immigration and I don't really want to research it all, just think of anything that Trump does and is magnified x amount compared to others or some things he/his administration does and gets zero credit (today Sudan/Israel that mainstream minimally mentioned) and yes, I think that is a big deal. If Obamas administration had brokered that deal, holy hell, you would have think we landed on Mars an establish a colony. Oh, and Texas ain't the only state with illegals, we have plenty here in NC, whole communities where you'd think you were in TJ. Also, in my opinion, military budget should be used to protect the American border, so, again in my opinion, it is justified to use defense funds for the defense of America and we should have American troops on the borders protecting them, I don't see how it would violate the posse comitatus act by doing so, they wouldn't be enforcing the law but protecting the border, simple defense. So by Trump pushing for stronger border control, you are saying he's turning off business owners that would typically support the republican/his agenda, which you should be fine with all the talk he does because that would mean less votes for him, which would thrill you, I'd guess. I would think you would want him to continue this immigration talk so as to actually push away the typical republican business owner. The leave was a jest/sarcasm, shoulda put a :flipoff: in there, but anyway, it be what it be. Doesn't bother me so much as being lumped in with a perception. Just as you are perceived as being a liberal.

    2021 R1250RT

    When I got my R1100RT a couple years ago, I went for looks. It was fast enough for me, I really didn't want/need the distraction of the wonder wheel and I wanted to do my own maintenance if possible. The design aesthetics of the older bikes appeal to me much more than newer bikes. Tho I have to say I really like the R18 design but its just too much bike for me and the cool weather along California's central coast where I live really calls for a bike with a fairing which BMW hasn't addressed on the R18, yet. But if I REALLY had to have a new bike and didn't care about the fairing, I'd justify buying this which is an modern RnineT under the covers. Best Miguel

    1999 R1150GS Suspect HES Failure - how to fix

    That easy huh? I assume it's a pita because you have to stop the engine, adjust, then retest, and repeat over and over until it's right.

    1999 R1150GS Suspect HES Failure - how to fix

    Evening Ironman1150 First. remove the rubber timing hole plug on the R/H side of the engine, then spin the engine until you can find the "Z" (that is full advance). Then clean the "Z" mark so you can see it with a timing light. Next, put your timing light on either spark plug, then point the timing light into that timing hole, next revv the engine until the spark quits advancing, you want to see the "Z" mark centered in the timing hole.

    1999 R1150GS Suspect HES Failure - how to fix

    Evening Ironman1150 Th ignition timing on the 1150 (MA 2.4) is dynamic so it jumps all over when trying to check it. Best way is to use a timing light & check it at the max advance mark on the flywheel when it reaches max advance while revving engine. Easy enough the CHECK, but kind a PITA if it needs adjusting.

    1999 R1150GS Suspect HES Failure - how to fix

    Thank you all for the replies. I ended up replacing the HES with a pattern part from Munich motorcycles in Perth. It's running ok now but id lke to check that it's aligned perfectly. I could go to the BMW dealer an hours ride away +$ or is there a way I can do it myself? Clymer manual does not mention the process for a 99 r1150GS with the square connector, only the wide flat version with a test box. I think I'll send my old HES away to be fixed as a spare.

    Democratic ticket is set

    Come on Richard! You know I know money was spent on the border before Trump. Before O'Bama too. But no one was dipping into military funds to do it, no one was in a rush to build a wall ( that Trump said Mexico would pay for ) as a monument to them. But what you don't seem to get is that those that are hiring the illegal aliens are business owners. And lean toward Republican voting. They want the cheap labor and will circumvent the law with a big smile and joke about it. I know, I was part of sitting in on that for years. I do watch Fox, to see what they have to say about things. I do spend more time on other outlets by far. Seems to bother you when I use statements not meant to include you personally. Don't take it that way. The Fox Bubble is a thing. If you are not part of that, well that is certainly a good thing if only in my opinion. But, I think you and I are done "debating" this. Telling me if I don't like something...then leave isn't proving a point.

    2021 1250RT changes?

    Ok people, my big question is "When these bikes are going to be available for us in US? " I'm getting ready to sell my 2015 and my Dealer told me that we should be looking more to the Spring time for their releases here. Can someone give us a better idea? I can't be without a bike for too long. Thanks, Alex
  25. Here in Arizona it does apply. Does the Lemon Law apply only to passenger vehicles? The Lemon Law applies not only to passenger vehicles, but also to trucks, SUV’s, vans, motorcycles, and all consumer goods that are covered by a manufacturer’s warranty and are used primarily for personal, family or household use.
  26. Evening Motor32 Make sure that you get them to extend your warranty by the amount of time the motorcycle was un-ridable. If they refuse then send a letter of explanation to your state's attorney general with a copy of that letter to the dealer.

    Youtube videos worth watching

    That video reminds me of every time somebody is going to show me some stupid picture on their phone that I HAVE to see, then they scroll for 20 seconds trying to find it, then, just as they are about to show me, they pull it back and say "no, wait." More scrolling. "Oh, here it is." Then push it in my face and say "isn't that great?" Yeah, great.

    Like Bernie said, have you seen the R18? It's a design....
